International Moving - Packing

Our specialised and unique international  export wrap has been designed to provide maximum protection for your furniture when moving overseas. Our international wrapping material has been specially developed by our team to provide maximum protection and is 100% recyclable. The wax-free material is ideal for highly polished items and leather products as it does not leave any marks, indentations or scratches like other products sometimes used in the industry.

Allied Pickfords has many different types of packing materials to ensure maximum protection for all of your personal effects. Our "Parts Carton" is designed to assist you with locating all those hard-to-find items when setting up your new home, such as remote controls, bolts for beds and other essential items that will save you valuable time when setting up your new home. It's another way Allied Pickfords helps you relax!

Our specialised crating and packing service ensures that any precious or delicate items are protected for your international move. Allied Pickfords can provide tailored crating for your antiques, artwork, sculptures and other precious items to ensure maximum protection for their journey.

Allied Pickfords' first ever New Zealand removal industry qualification has been packed up and delivered by Mito ITO, and Allied Pickfords are the first company in New Zealand to offer this training.

The National Certificate in Domestic and International Relocation Operations (Level 2) will provide Allied Pickfords' staff with valuable industry skills, and differentiates our business from the rest.

With this new qualification, employees now have an opportunity to gain nationally recognised skills and knowledge to advance their moving careers even further.

Staff members are assessed in class rooms and on the job to pack, wrap, carry and stow goods to a national standard. The qualification, which also includes unit standards relating to health and safety, customer service and measurement, is nationally recognized and Allied Pickfords employees completing the training will receive a National Certificate registered on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework.

The qualification covers both Domestic and International Relocation Operations standards, and there is a mix of theoretical and practical on the job training modules, including:

  • Preparing and planning a relocation operation
  • Packing and wrapping (domestic and international)
  • Stowing (domestic and international)
  • Business relocations
  • Load handling
  • Using standard units of measurement
  • Health and safety
  • Customer service

All staff are registered with NZQA and are trained and tested to NZQA National Certificate.

Currently Allied Pickfords has over 60 staff with NZQA qualification in removals.
